Summer of XBLA Featuring Castlevania: Harmony of Despair on August 4

Despite rumors early last month that Castlevania: Harmony of Despair would be released as part of Microsoft's Xbox Live Summer of Arcade promotion, the game wasn't mentioned in the initial announcement of this summer's annual Xbox Live Marketplace sale, as our report was quick to point out. Fortunately for Castlevania fans hankering for a classic Dracula-slaying title with a new twist, Konami has today announced that HoD will, in fact, be the third of five titles released over the coming weeks. The Xbox Live exclusive will be available for download on August 4 at the reasonable price of 1200 Microsoft "space bucks," or about $15. Hit the jump for more details. Read More

Multiplayer Castlevania: Harmony of Despair rated, existence seems probable

The Australian Classification Board website has today inadvertently confirmed the existence of Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, rumors of which first surfaced about a month ago. According to details released by (and promptly pulled from) gaming and technology news blog Never Know Tech, Harmony of Despair is a six player, two dimensional, multiplayer "Metroidvania" type experience. The title was trademarked in Europe last month, and the Australian Classification Board revealed today that the game will receive a "Mature" rating in the land down under, which translates roughly to a Teen rating in the US.

New Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth Details Emerge from the Darkness

Some new details surrounding the ReBirth of Castlevania: The Adventure have surfaced, thanks to Tiny Cartridge. Development tasks for this title went to M2, who also handled the previous ReBirth titles for Gradius and Contra. They are being led by longtime Castlevania Producer Koji "IGA" Igarashi, while musical chores are being handled by Dawn of Sorrow's Nobuhiko Matsufuji, Manabu Namiki of Basiscape, and M2's own Keisuke Koga and Jason "Chip-Tech" Nisperos. As we've seen in the gameplay videos, jumping on and off stairs is out, though you do retain some control while in the air. For the purists, beating the game opens a "Classic" style in which Christopher Belmont moves like every other easily-thrown tank in his family. To obtain such an option will require conquering six stages, two more than the original title. And you can choose how mercilessly you want to be beaten from three levels of difficulty. That's all for now, but you know we'll be keeping our eyes on this one. Read More
